The most well-known parasites affecting pets are fleas and ticks, but there are several more that are just as common.

Mites, lice, heartworm, and intestinal parasites are some other common parasites that your pet may encounter. Not only might your pet endure uncomfortable symptoms due to a parasitic infection, their life could be in jeopardy as well. Human health might also be affected by parasites that originate in our pets.

Fleas are the most infamous parasite on cats and dogs. In addition to causing skin irritation, these insects transfer germs that cause cat scratch fever and even transmit certain other parasites parasites such as tapeworms. Mosquito bites can transmit heartworms to our pets. Ticks may carry serious diseases that can lead to Lyme disease, paralysis, anemia, and other problems. These are only a handful of the parasites that our pets may come into contact with.
